Used to be much better

I remember when Sakura was opening, I wasn't living far from it at the time and was really excited for it to open being that the only other place to get Japanese was Yo Sushi!

Chose this as I was staying in South Sea for my birthday with hubby and a friend. I have only ever eaten in a japenese restaurant before in Guernsey and loved that so was very happy to find this local to where we were staying. We decided to walk as only 15 mins. We were lucky to have rung on... More

couldn't believe it was 3 minutes from my house! ordered mixed nagri and soko yaba noodles! Very authentic and minimal which is what is so good about Japanese cuisine. Every detail is predetermined and thought over!

I absolutely love Sakura. We tried their take away service again and it couldn't have been better. Granted, we don't like far away from them but the food was with us within 15 minutes, great service and really reasonable. Couldn't recommend highly enough! X

Came here for dinner as we have been meaning to try Sakura for years! Started with spicy tuna roll and scallop nigiri which were both delicious. The fish was so fresh and very generously portioned.
